The University of Manchester’s Politics Expert Media Group is a great resource for journalists to provide quick and accurate insight as events in the world of politics unfold. As the largest political science department in the country, Manchester’s experts are uniquely placed to interpret and analyse the coming and goings on the political stage.

As public intellectuals, we take our obligations seriously and value the opportunity to take part in the national debate recognising the important role the media can play in making this happen.

Whether you are a print, online or broadcast journalist, we are happy and able to engage with you to interpret and analyse the events of the day in Westminster and how they play out in Whitehall and beyond.
